icons, baubles and a parrot

Bellini (guitars) and Black Diamonds, Raleigh bicycles in Krugersdorp. Hollywood House too in Krugersdorp. So Dr Dadoo, and Babla.

Not faraway, Ahmed Timol. Roodepoort. Deep. High School . Sookadia's Fish'n Ships. Billy Moonsamy.

Railway station.

Cajee's Bicycle Works. Got my first copy, seven single, Cat Stevens' Wild World

Wild, wild world, beyond that segregated park in Krugersdorp, where we were so severely humiliated and traumatized, all of  five years old, all of us. Pointed out, pointed at, jeered, howled at and out. And at five, I already rued over-riding my earlier decision not to go with the rest of the kids, 'cause I knew what would happen...

PS Parrot belonged to the Dadoo's, not far from Dr. Boorany's practice. What a practise...
